This week our resident tackler, Jena Webber, is posting about a yummy, healthy thing to eat that will give your immune system a zing!

Tackling an Immune System Boost
A lot of the health-food kicks I’ve been on have involved : 1) equipment and 2) work to put together.
But not this! It goes together fast and easy. You just need a basic blender and a little creativity.
But there is one problem…
It looks weird.
It does not taste weird, I promise. It actually tastes like: an orange julius!
So, like.. what is in it???
Oh, I thought you’d never ask!
Put these in your blender:
1 cup of frozen fruit (try mango: it’s the bomb!)
1/4 cup of vanilla protein powder
3/4 cup of plain yogurt
a hefty dose of orange juice concentrate
some juice or water or milk
3-4 cups of packed small leaf spinach (yeah, that’s right!)
1-2 T of ground flax seed (optional)
Buzz that thing around so it all gets pulverized. Add more juice if you like.
So, how does it taste?
Pretty good actually!
Don’t be like the mopey guy in Green Eggs and Ham who got chased down, dragged out and knocked out before he would even TRY green eggs and ham.
You may like it, you will see… You may like it in a tree…
You say you do not like it,
so you say,
try it, and you may
try it and you may I say…
Aww! Come on, just muck it on down.
Now that you have given your immune system such a POW, you’ll want to do your super-efficient blitz around the house. You may want to go for a power walk or get organized or something.
This week I totally got organized with my recipes. Wooo wee! I feel like cooking too!
